I'm really excited that IBM is considering releasing their LVM
technology -- JFS and the LVM were really the best features of AIX by
Could you address the prospect of IBM's LVM incorporating "shared"
volume groups like the commercial high-availablity software (IBM's
HA/CMP or HP's Service Guard or Sun's HA offering). That kind of
software would allow a disk group to transfer to another system if the
main host failed.
Would something like that be a "feature plug-in" in the framework which
was proposed in the white paper?
